81 expected to graduate from GHHS By ALAN FROMAN ThisWeek Community Newspapers

Eighty-one seniors are expected to receive their diplomas June 5 at Grandview Heights High School’s commencement. The ceremony will take place at 3 p.m. in the high school auditorium. Larry Larson, former athletics director and teacher, will serve as commencement speaker. Following a change last year, the high school no longer names a valedictorian or salutatorian. Instead, two seniors, Mag-

gie Clemens and Andrew Smigelski, were selected to serve as student speakers at the ceremony through an application process. A committee of teachers reviewed speeches submitted by 10 students, senior class advisor Kevin Richards said. Sunday’s commencement will cap a series of scheduled activities for seniors leading up to graduation. The annual student trip to Cedar Point was held May 22-23. “We had perfect weather. It didn’t rain a drop,” Richards said. Rainy weather did force the cancella-

tion of the annual senior service day on May 24, he said. Seniors were scheduled to do service projects in both Grandview and Marble Cliff, Richards said. A lunch for the students was still held. Rain held back long enough for a new ceremony to be held outdoors on May 26, seniors’ last regular day of school. Students from other classes formed a gauntlet on the sidewalk outside the school at the end of the day, Richards said. The seniors walked through the gauntlet to the football field, where they released balloons into the air, he said. “It was kind of a last ceremony, a last

memory for them as they end their time at the high school,” Richards said. The idea was suggested by interim principal Scott Stewart, he said. “It’s been a pleasure” advising this year’s senior class, Richards said. “They are quite a remarkable group of students.” The 81 seniors received more than $4 million in scholarship offers, he said. “It’s just an amazing amount of scholarships” for such a small class, Richards said. “They are a very close-knit group,” he said. “It’s a fun group. They are a very talkative class, very sociable.”

The class of 2011 achieved much, both academically and in service to the school and community, Richards said. Graduation practice will be held at 1:45 p.m. Friday in the high school auditorium. Students will pick up their cap and gown and receive their tickets for graduation at the practice. Baccalaureate will be held at 11 a.m. Saturday at Boulevard Presbyterian Church. Seniors should arrive by 2:30 p.m. Sunday for the graduation ceremony. afroman@thisweeknews.com www.ThisWeekNEWS.com

Memorial service honors community members who made ultimate sacrifice By ALAN FROMAN ThisWeek Community Newspapers

Grandview Heights and Marble Cliff residents gathered May 26 for the Tri-Village Area Memorial Service to honor the members of the community who lost their lives in service to their country. The ceremony was moved from Memorial Park to the Grandview Heights High School auditorium because of inclement weather.

Grandview Mayor Ray DeGraw noted the service was the 70th annual ceremony, which was started in 1942 by the Tri-Village Blue Star Mothers. The last surviving Blue Star Mother in the area, Laura Titus, passed away last year at age 91, DeGraw said. For many years, Titus organized and at-

The Grandview Heights High School auditorium renovation project will be completed this summer, thanks to a donation made by alumni from GHHS classes of the 1960s in honor of a fellow Bobcat. The $1,628 donation was made in honor of Tom Hayes, class of 1967. The money will be used to complete the installation of two separate handicap areas on the first floor of the auditorium. Hayes became a Columbus police officer and was permanently paralyzed in 1979 when he was shot in the line of duty. He died in January.

“Tommy was such an inspiration to so many of us, we wanted to do something to honor him,” said Roger Rill, a member of Hayes’ class. The project was spearheaded by ’67 alumni Bill Fauth and Debbie Latshaw Steller and 1960s alumnus Gary Essig, he said. “We asked the group doing the auditorium project what we could do to help and they told us how much money it would cost to do the handicap areas,” Rill said. “It seemed like an appropriate way to honor Tommy’s memory.” The money was collected from alumni from various 1960s classes, he said. See DONATION, page A2

tended the service in honor of her son, James, who was killed in the Vietnam War, and of other service members who gave the ultimate sacrifice, Marble Cliff Village Council member Kandy Troiano said during her presentation on the history of the Blue Star Mothers. As he did last year, DeGraw gave details about the lives and deaths of four of the names on the honor roll: See SACRIFICE, page A5

Arnett Howard to kick off Music on Lawn series By ALAN FROMAN ThisWeek Community Newspapers

The Music on the Lawn concert series will open for its 26th season Tuesday, June 7, with a performance by Arnett Howard’s Band. The concert will begin at 7 p.m. on the lawn at the Grandview Heights Public Library.

“It’s fitting to open this year’s Music on the Lawn series with Arnett,” said Canaan Faulkner, the library’s coordinator of adult programs and web content. “He’s been with us every year, except when he was retired. People really love Arnett Howard.” The year’s lineup includes a mix of returning favorites and new bands, he said.

“You can tell by the audience reaction the bands that people want to return,” Faulkner said. One of those popular favorites will be The Conspiracy Band, which will perform its high-energy R ‘n’ B and funk music on June 14. “The Conspiracy Band really gets people out of their seats and moving,” Faulkner said.

Stevenson, district

Staff members prepare for retirement By ALAN FROMAN ThisWeek Community Newspapers

Along with the Class of 2011, a number of Grandview Heights City School District staff members are preparing to leave school. Director of pupil services Kathy Binau, Stevenson literacy support teacher Karen Lorenz and Edilia Falasca, a recreation leader with the district’s child care program, are retiring at the end of the school year. Binau has worked in the district for 20 years, first as a school psychologist/administrator before becoming director of pupil services. In her current position, Binau works with teachers involved in the district’s programs for special needs students, gifted and talented students and those who need assistance in their English language reading skills. Although at first she was finding it hard to accept that retirement was nearing, “now I’m really looking forward to it, because it will give me more time to visit my children.” Binau was majoring in chemistry in college when she decided to follow her interest in psychology. “I knew, though, that just being a therapist wasn’t for me,” she said. “Being a clinical psychologist wasn’t active enough for me.” She wanted to work in education, and hasn’t regretted it, Binau

said. “I love watching kids and adults learn and I’ve loved watching the inclusion movement that’s grown over the last 20 years in our district,” she said. The increasing emphasis on making sure special needs students are placed in regular classrooms benefits not only those students, but traditional students as well, Binau said. Grandview is a special district, she said. “Because we are so small, we can personalize the education that each student receives,” Binau said. She will miss the students and the opportunity to work with a group of teachers and staff members who care so much about those students, she said. “I’ve grown as a person and learned how to be a more effective leader because of the people I’ve been able to work with here in Grandview,” Binau said. Lorenz has spent most of her 35-year career in Grandview. Most of her 33 years in the district were spent as a second-grade teacher. “I’m not sure the idea that I’m retiring has really sunk in yet,” she said. “Right now, it still feels like just another summer vacation. In the fall, when everybody is returning to school and I’m not, that’s when it will hit me.” Her interest in a teaching career blossomed during her senior year in high school, Lorenz said. “I had an extra study hall I did-

n’t want to sit through, so they sent me to the elementary side of the little school I attended and I worked with a special education teacher,” she said. “In particular, there was a little girl with cerebral palsy who we worked with,” Lorenz said. “I enjoyed helping her and enjoyed trying to think of activities that would benefit her.” For a time, Lorenz wavered over whether she wanted to become an occupational therapist or a teacher. “The thing I like about teaching is that it’s never the same two years in a row,” she said. “There are new students each year, or curriculum changes or a change in the course of study. It never gets old. “Teaching is so rewarding because you feel like you’re taking a real responsibility in helping to develop these youngsters who are someday going to be making the decisions when I’m in my old age,” Lorenz said. Lorenz said she has enjoyed working in Grandview. “Because we are a small district, I’ve been able to keep track of the students I had when they were 7 or 8 years old,” she said. “You can keep tabs on how they’re doing in middle school or in sports at the high school,” Lorenz said. “When the Grandview Singers come to Stevenson, I can say, ‘I had this student or that student in my class and look

at them now.’” She has no specific plans for retirement. “I am looking forward to being able to go grocery shopping at 10 a.m. when the stores are less crowded and read for pleasure,” Lorenz said. “I’m looking forward to being able to take a fall vacation, which I’ve never been able to do because I’ve either been a student or a teacher.” Falasca is retiring after spending 10 years working as a recreation leader in the district’s child care program. She worked for many years as a seamstress, but when career opportunities in that area evaporated, she opted for a shift to child care. “I love kids and when I saw this position listed in a local paper, I decided to go for it,” Falasca said. “I thought it would be fun, and it has been a lot of fun.” Seeing the children enrolled in the Kids’Club program every afternoon, “you get to know them and grow really close to a lot of them,” she said.’ “I learn a lot from them, that’s what I feel,” Falasca said. “They are so enthusiastic and excited about everything, you learn from that.” She will miss the student and her co-workers as well, she said. “I’ve just enjoyed being here every day,” Falasca said. “Grandview is a great place to be. People are so neighborly here.”

Academy announces McCoy as commencement speaker By MARLA K. KUHLMAN ThisWeek Community Newspapers

Columbus Academy will graduate 83 seniors at 9 a.m. Friday, June 10, marking the 98th class of the coeducational, independent school in Gahanna. John B. McCoy, retired chairman of Bank One Corp., will serve as commencement speaker 50 years after graduating from the academy, whose enrollment is 1,070 students in prekindergarten through grade 12. Columbus Academy’s valedictorian and other award winners will be announced during an honors assembly Wednesday, June 8. “The class of 2011 has been impressive in many areas,” said John Mackenzie, headmaster. “It includes students with remarkable strengths across all aspects of school life: academics, athletics, arts and activities. Many of the students have won recognition for their accomplishments at the state and national level. These strengths have enabled them to offer important leadership to our younger grades and have won them admission to a broad range of very selective colleges.”

Academy’s class of 2011 will be represented at 55 different colleges and universities. As the seniors approach graduation, Mackenzie said, most of them are appreciating how their experience at Columbus Academy has been shaped by the close friendships they have made with classmates and faculty members who have offered them guidance and support. “As Columbus Academy celebrates its 100th year, we could not be more proud of a senior class that has represented all the best values of this school,” Mackenzie said. After graduating as class president from Columbus Academy in 1961, McCoy earned his bachelor’s degree in history from Williams College in 1965, and he received an honorary doctor of laws degree from the Williamstown, Mass., school in 1992. McCoy also has an MBA in finance from Stanford University and honorary doctorate degrees from the Ohio State University, Kenyon College and Michigan State University. Graduation ceremonies will be held at the senior quad at the school, 4300 Cherry Bottom Road.

DONATION Continued from page A1 “We’re spread all over the country, but once a Bobcat, always a Bobcat,” Rill said. “This is the kind of thing we do in Grandview.” Tom Hayes “was an amazing person,” he said. “He was upbeat all the time. Just a pleasant, happy guy.” Even when he was shot and paralyzed, “he never let it get him down,” Rill said. Hayes later worked for the police department as an artist, he said. The donation from the alumni group is much appreciated, said Mitch Levitt, a member of the auditorium project group. “It’s exciting to finally be nearing completion of the project,” he said. The handicap areas will be installed over the summer and seat padding will be added to about 300 chairs, Levitt said. Once those chairs are finished, all 900 or so chairs in the auditorium will have been restored and

refurbished as part of the project’s second phase, he said. The work will complete the second phase of the auditorium project, Levitt said. The fundraising and work has been completed over a three-year period. The first phase included installing state-of-the-art audio-visual equipment, repainting the auditorium, applying acoustical treatment to the auditorium’s hard-surface walls and replacing the aisle carpet. “We were able to do more than we had originally planned,” Levitt said. “(Grandview resident) Jack Liberatore restored the front of the stage” adding removable panels at the center of the stage and providing storage space. All told, about $110,000 was raised for the auditorium project, he said. “We couldn’t have done it without the donations” from groups including the Grandview Heights/Marble Cliff Education Foundation, the GHHS Alumni Association, the Bobcat Boosters,

the Northwest Kiwanis and an individual donation by Jack Sutphen, Levitt said. “Plus, there are all those people who adopted a seat as part of our campaign,” he said. Some chairs are still available for adoption, Levitt said. Forms are available in the high school office. Supporters can sponsor one chair for $250, two chairs for $400 and $150 for each additional chair, he said. Superintendent Ed O’Reilly said the auditorium improvements were needed work. “It was on our list, but when you have leaky roofs you have to take care of those needs first,” he said. It says a lot about the community that groups step forward to complete needed projects, including the auditorium improvements, the renovation of the Brotherhood of the Rooks media center at the high school and improvements to the football stadium, O’Reilly said.

Summer reading clubs kick off Monday at Grandview library By ALAN FROMAN ThisWeek Community Newspapers

The Grandview Heights Public Library’s kids and teen summer reading clubs will give participants a chance to explore the world and the world of reading during their break from school. Registration for both programs kicks off June 6. The programs will run through Aug. 6. Both reading clubs have global-related themes that are being used by libraries throughout the nation for their summer reading programs, youth services librarian Eileen McNeil said. “We’ll be having a series of activities this summer that spotlight a particular country or area of the world,� she said. A kickoff concert for the kids’ summer reading club featuring local singer/songwriter Miss Molly Winters will be held at 11 a.m. June 6 on the library lawn. Participants in the kids club will again be able to earn prizes based on the amount of time they spend reading books, being read to or listening to audio books this summer, McNeil said. Youngsters will earn a prize for every four hours of reading and the grand prize — a reading club T-shirt — will be awarded to those who complete 20 hours, she said. The prizes include coupons from local businesses and restaurants or items kids select from a treasure chest of prizes. A series of summer craft programs for students in grades K3 will be held 2 to 3 p.m. Tuesdays from June 14 through July 26, except for July 19. Among the crafts youngsters will get to try are sand art, creating a kaleidoscope and aboriginal art. Space is limited for the craft program. Registration begins June 6 in the youth services department or by calling 481-3778. Lunch Bunch, a weekly program for students entering grades 2-5, will be held from noon to 1 p.m. Thursdays, June 16 through Aug. 4. Youngsters can bring their lunch to the library, enjoy stories and activities and earn one hour of reading time. No registration

The program will be presented by the Regan Rankin Academy of Irish Dance.  Songs that Tell Stories and Books that Sing, 2 p.m. June 22, ages 2-10.

The program will feature reptiles, amphibians and arachnids.  Jim Cruise “The Spoon Man,� 2 p.m. July 19. During Slapshot Fridays, held from 3 to 4 p.m. Fridays June 24 through Aug. 5, youngsters will be able to read to Slapshot, a therapy dog owned by Melinda Boring. This year’s kids’ reading club has been expanded to include students entering sixth grade. The teen reading club will be open to students entering grades 7-12, McNeil said. The change has been made because of the library’s new space for students in grades 7-12, “The Basement.� “The Basement� is located next to the study commons and features books, audiobooks, graphic novels, magazines, computers

and programs for middle and high school students. Teens can earn prizes in the reading club at three different levels, McNeil said. For every four activities completed, they will reach another level, she said. The four activities in each level are limited to one hour of serving as a volunteen, attending one reading club activity and reading two books, McNeil said. The teen club activities will include:  Book Blitz, a program in which students can learn about new and old titles to read, check books out and pick up booklists for future reading. The Book Blitz will be held on Wednesday, June 8. The program will be held from 2 to 3 p.m. for grades 4-6 and 3 to 4 p.m. for grades 7-9 in The Basement.

The summer reading clubs are designed to help keep students interested in reading while school is out of session, McNeil said. “We hear all the time from teachers that there is a difference, that kids who participate in the reading program come back to school a little more advanced,� she said.

Columbus2020!

Central Ohio’s prospects $ for job growth are promising Pharmaceutical companies often are judged by their “pipeline” of future products. Their stock price could fluctuate on the value of this pipeline and the potential it has to drive future revenue. The Columbus2020! initiative also tracks its pipeline of potential projects, those competitive initiatives that could add jobs and investment in the Columbus region. A close analysis likely would warrant a “buy” recommendation if the Columbus region were selling shares of stock. The Columbus2020! initiative’s pipeline comprises companies that aren’t here yet but that are considering central Ohio for new facilities, as well as existing companies that are considering expansion locally and a host of new enterprises that are being developed through TechColumbus and at satellite entrepreneurial centers throughout the area. One thing is clear: The level of activity is up compared to the past several years, and our prospects for the future are bright. A closer look at the new companies looking at our region shows that 58 percent of the projects are small- to medium-size operations in the advanced-manufacturing sector; 28 percent are international companies considering the United States, and a framework for headquarters and back-office projects has the potential to create hundreds of jobs. Projects are being sourced from nearly every corner of the nation, and each international mission is creating qualified projects. The region’s technology incubators and entrepreneurial cen-

ters are nearing capacity in Columbus, Dublin and New Albany, driven by market opportunities in the KENNY advanced-enMCDONALD ergy, advanced-materials, information-technology and medical-healthcare sectors. It is a testament to the efforts of state and local leaders that such operations exist to nurture these new enterprises that represent the future of central Ohio. As another indicator, in 2010 funding for local startups reached new heights as a record-setting 117 promising young companies

received $307.56 million in innovation capital to fuel the growth of their businesses. This is a 73percent increase over 2009. TechColumbus has the entire report online at TechColumbus.org. The Columbus area has to compete to win these projects, and the companies have to execute on their plans for our potential to be realized, but the market potential is there. The Columbus region has a lot to feel good about: Its future prospects for job growth and investment look great.

Grandview Heights Roundup

Stefanoff wins regional title in 3,200 By SCOTT HENNEN ThisWeek Community Newspapers

A week after being slowed by a virus, Hannah Stefanoff showed off the qualities that made her a Division I college signee in track and field. The illness left the Grandview Heights High School senior in only one individual event — the 3,200 meters — in the Division III regional meet. She seized control of the race early and won in 11 minutes, 27.32 seconds on May 27 at Fairfield Union. The Bobcats went on to finish second (57 points) as 47 teams scored and Waynesfield-Goshen (71) won the title. Attica Seneca East was third (50). The top four in each event at regional advanced to the state meet Friday and Saturday, June 3-4, at Ohio State. Stefanoff won the 3,200 well ahead of

runner-up Brittany Stockmaster of Seneca East (11:46.77). “It feels good to come back with a race like this especially after running with a virus last week (at district),” said Stefanoff, who has signed to run cross country and track at Georgia State. “I feel more comfortable if I stay near the front of the pack and I was able to do that.” Last year at state, Stefanoff finished second in the 3,200 (11:15.33). “(The win at regional) makes me feel a lot better going into state,” Stefanoff said. “I was worried because I didn’t feel well (at district) and was afraid it would carry over.” Stefanoff began a charge that helped the Bobcats finish as the runners-up at regional for the second consecutive season. After her victory, Grandview was third with 49 points, one behind Seneca East. But the 1,600 relay of Jordan Fitzgerald, Sarah

Meier, Caitlyn Sarich and Laura Satterthwaite then finished second (4:07.06) to vault the Bobcats into second in the team standings. “Normally, I’m nervous before a race, but I wasn’t (before the 1,600 relay),” Fitzgerald said. “I just wanted to go out there and do the best that I could and help us advance.” Meier also advanced in three individual events. The senior won the 300 hurdles in a regional- and program-record 44.36 and won the 100 hurdles in a program-record 14.7. She was fourth in the 200 (25.8). “I still don’t start well, but I have been working on that,” Meier said. “I practice with the stationary blocks, but I don’t use my arms. That way, if I don’t start quickly enough, I will fall flat.” The 3,200 relay of Halli Bair, Stefanoff, See BOBCATS, page A7

Aging or not, Memorial isn’t standing pat By KURTIS ADAMS ThisWeek Community Newspapers

Now in its fifth decade as one of the PGA Tour’s premier events, the Memorial Tournament presented by Nationwide Insurance is moving into middle age. The activity in and around Muirfield Village Golf Club hasn’t slowed, however. “A lot’s been going on,” Memorial founder and host Jack Nicklaus said. It’s clearly been a whirlwind of a year since Englishman Justin Rose posted rounds of 65-69-70-66 for an 18-underpar 270 total to defeat Rickie Fowler by three strokes and Bo Van Pelt and Ricky Barnes by six shots in the 2010

Memorial while earning his first victory on American soil. “There are plenty of tournaments more tenured than the Memorial, but for 36 years we’ve enjoyed considerable sustained success,” said Dan Sullivan, who is in his eighth year as tournament director and 20th with the Memorial. “With Jack and Barbara (Nicklaus) as our hosts, and with the way the golf course has stood the test of time, we really like where the tournament is right now and where it’s going in the future.” Groundbreaking for the redesign of the par-3 16th hole, which was the first major renovation undertaken on the course in several years, was held last July as Muirfield Village was bidding to

attract the Presidents Cup in 2013. It subsequently was awarded the international competition in March and will become the first course in the world to play host to that event in addition to the Ryder Cup and women’s Solheim Cup. Also, a six-year deal with Nationwide to become the tournament’s new presenting sponsor was announced last September. “Thanks to the vision and commitment of my father and mother, the Memorial long ago elevated itself as one of the most prestigious and popular events on the PGA Tour, while Nationwide has a decades-old reputation of being one of the strongest providers of insurance and financial services in

Ready Roundup

Knights to take shots at state track titles By JARROD ULREY ThisWeek Community Newspapers

The Ready High School boys and girls track and field teams completed regional competition last weekend with a combined five championships and realistic hopes that they could add to that total in the state meet. Emily Morris will compete for the title in Division II girls shot put at 9 a.m. Saturday, June 4, at Ohio State. Nick Frye, Taron Slone and Demetrius Clark all advanced to state in individual events and the boys 400-meter and 800 relays also moved on in Division III, which holds its running preliminaries at 10 a.m. Friday, June 3, and finals at 9:30 a.m. Saturday, June 4. “It’s pretty surprising what (the boys) are doing,” Slone said. “We were looking good at the CCL meet (May 12 and 14) and each week we’ve improved.” Morris earned her final chance at a state title in the shot put by winning

BOBCATS

the Division II regional championship May 28 in Dayton Welcome Stadium with a throw of 42 feet, 3 1/2 inches. She had the second-best throw among all four regionals behind Washington Court House’s Jessica Guyett, who won the regional at Byesville Meadowbrook with an effort of 42-6. Last season, Morris took third at state with a throw of 40-3 1/2. She was second (40-11) as a sophomore. Her performance helped the girls team score 10 points and tie BloomCarroll, Buckeye Valley and Cincinnati Taft for 21st behind champion Hartley (82) as 49 teams scored. Morris was in third place heading into the finals of the shot put. “I won, which I’m really excited about actually,” Morris said. “I missed my graduation (May 28) for this and I knew if I didn’t throw it far enough (during the finals) that I was only going to get third place. So I got a little bit extra distance on it.”

Below are the state qualifiers for the Ready track & field teams with regional event, place and time/distance/height: BOYS — Demetrius Clark: 100 (fourth, 11.24); Nick Frye: 110 hurdles (first, 14.72); Taron Slone: 100 (first, 10.73); 400 relay: Clark,

Frye and Slone also enter state among the title favorites in their individual events. After finishing 11th at state in the 110 hurdles (15.63 seconds) last season, Frye has taken a big step forward this spring. His winning time of 14.72 on May 27 at Fairfield Union was the best time among competitors at the four Division III regionals. Slone’s first-place time of 10.73 in the 100 also was the state’s best at the

The 3,200 relay of Stefanoff, Davis, 2010 graduate Hilary Els and Emily Lachey was third in 9:45.84. The Grandview boys tied Fredericktown for sixth (30) at regional as 46 teams scored and Columbus Academy (71) won the title. “It’s been a great year because the sprinting at Grandview hasn’t been much in the past,” said Joe Trapp, who advanced in the 200 (third, 22.11) and as part of the 400 and 800 relays. “We were always known as being a distance school, but we did the best we could to break that stereotype. It’s exciting to be a part of that.” The 800 relay was second (program-record 1:31.82) with John Dickson, Evan Tillett, Ryan Schofield and Trapp, and the 400 relay was third (46.66) with Dickson, Schofield, Jason Franks and Trapp. “It felt good,” Dickson said of running the 800 relay. “You get about 20 meters in lane 7 and the big thing for me was to hold off Ready as long as I could.” Ready won the 800 relay in 1:31.2. Coach Brian Schoch was ecstatic about the performances of his teams. “We just had so many people score for us and so many (personal records),” Schoch said. “It’s easy to be encouraged when you have so many people score for you.” •The boys tennis team saw its season end May 20 in the Division II sectional at Academy. The Bobcats lost their postseason openers on all five courts. In singles play, junior Kyle McLain lost 6-3, 6-0 to Shabach Tyrus of Wellington, junior Ezra Baker lost 6-2, 6-1 to Joseph Seipel of Ready and freshman Nick Luckenbach was defeated by Ready’s Thomas Livingston 6-0, 6-0. In doubles play, sophomore Luke Snider and sophomore Trevor Voelker lost to Ryan Bibo and Eric

At a glance

Below are the state qualifiers for the Grandview Heights track & field teams with regional event, place and time/distance/height: BOYS — Joe Trapp: 200 (third, 22.11); 400 relay: John Dickson, Ryan Schofield, Jason Franks and Trapp (third, 46.66); 800 relay: Dickson, Evan Tillett, Schofield and Trapp (second, 1:31.82) GIRLS — Sarah Meier: 100 hurdles (first, 14.7), 200 (fourth, 25.8), 300 hurdles (first, 44.36); Hannah Stefanoff: 3,200 (first, 11:27.32); 1,600 relay: Jordan Fitzgerald, Meier, Caitlyn

Brunton of Watterson 6-2, 6-2 and junior Ryan Grinstead and freshman Peter Bonn lost to Gian Carlo DiMichaelangelo and Sonny DiMichaelangelo of DeSales 6-0, 6-0. “If you look back and think, we had two kids back who had won letters (Baker and junior Nick Levitt) and Kyle McLain had only played three varsity matches last year and we moved him to (first singles),” said coach Ray Corbett, who completed his 21st season leading the program. “We had some inexperienced kids who had to get used to playing at the varsity level and they got a lot of valuable experience.” The Bobcats finished 5-10 overall in dual matches and were fifth (15) in the seventeam MSL-Cardinal/Ohio tournament on May 7 at Academy, behind Bexley (47), Academy (43), Granville (29) and Fisher Catholic (17) and ahead of Whitehall (8) and West Jefferson (2). Grandview did not have any seniors and expects to return its entire roster next season. “Everyone was forced to grow up early this year and I felt we did a decent job through that,” Corbett said. “McLain was playing everyone else’s best players and we had two sophomores at first doubles in Luke Snider and Trevor Voelker who both did a pretty good job. “We hope that the kids get after it this summer and like the sport enough to play and get better. That will be a contributing factor in steps we make to improve over this year.” •The softball team finished 5-9 in the MSL-Cardinal behind champion Liberty Union (14-0). The Bobcats finished 5-15 overall, losing to Utica 15-3 in five innings on May 9 in the first round of the Division III district tournament.

Sarich and Laura Satterthwaite (second, 4:07.06); 3,200 relay: Halli Bair, Stefanoff, Anna Davis and Emily Lachey (third, 9:57.29) Other regional results: BOYS — Brendan Cox: high jump (sixth, 6-0); Luke Evans: 3,200 (fifth, 10:08.88); 1,600 relay: Trapp, Schofield, Dylan Golding and Ben Mathes (10th, 3:38.95); 3,200 relay: Mathes, Golding, Josh Smith and Brendan Cox (sixth, 8:30.27) GIRLS — Fitzgerald: 400 (seventh, 1:01.57); Emma Haase: pole vault (tied for 11th, 8-0); Lachey: 800 (fifth, 2:27.45); 800 relay: Lindsey Smith, Caitlyn Sarich, Lachey and Fitzgerald (seventh, 1:51.3)

“Everyone improved in every category, both offensively and defensively,” said coach Jim Amato, who completed his third season leading the program. “We played stronger in the last couple weeks of the season.” The Bobcats had four seniors in Jordan Abbruzzese (2B), Abby Cameron (P/1B), Chelsea Jones (OF) and Olivia Hickman (C). Cameron and Hickman were four-year letterwinners and Cameron was named the team’s best defensive player. Abbruzzese was the team’s co-MVP with junior pitcher Claire Artrup, who took over most of the pitching duties after Cameron broke a thumb midway through the season. “Olivia Hickman was our catcher and did a great job of controlling the defense and she threw out a lot of runners,” Amato said. “Jordan Abbruzzese was solid at second base and Abby Cameron and Chelsea Jones had injuries. Abby broke a thumb and Chelsea was in a car accident and was not able to play as much as we thought she would.” Expected back are junior Kyleah Burton-Smiles (SS), who was named the team’s outstanding offensive player, and sophomore Aileen Evans (INF/OF), who was named the most improved player. Other juniors expected back are Kelly Berlin (OF), Brenna McLaughlin (INF/OF), Olivia Reed (C/INF/OF) and Kelsey Senter (OF). Sophomore Mia Bell (OF) also is expected to return, as are freshmen Morgan Ramey (P) and Natalie Webb (P/3B). “We had six or seven juniors who started at one point or another this season,” Amato said. “That experience should be a benefit going into next season.” shennen@thisweeknews.com www.ThisWeekSPORTS.com

I don’t think I’ll be so nervous this time.” Clark took fourth in the 100 (11.24) at regional to advance individually. Clark, Frye and Slone were joined by Halston Jones on the 400 relay (43.96) and 800 relay (1:31.2), both of which took first at regional. The boys team placed second (45) of 46 teams that scored at regional, which was won by Columbus Academy (71). “I’m absolutely excited for the relays,” Frye said. “I’ve never been on a relay that got to state before.” “At the beginning of the season, we weren’t looking too good (in the relays), but we’ve put it together,” Slone said.

I’ve been getting out better this year by making sure my lead leg gets over the hurdle. This year I’ve worked on strengthening my right leg more.” “There’s a big target on my back,” Slone said. “I know everybody is work- julrey@thisweeknews.com ing hard to go faster, so it pushes me www.ThisWeekSPORTS.com

Schedule

Continued from page A6 coming from Rose, three-time major champion Phil Mickelson, Luke Donald, reigning Masters champion Charl Schwartzel, reigning British Open champion Louis Oosthuizen, two-time 2011 winner Bubba Watson and Fowler, who was named the PGA Tour’s Rookie of the Year last season. Another early entrant was Fred Couples, who won the Memorial in 1998. Elsewhere, another past champion recently was elected to the World Golf Hall of Fame. South African Ernie Els (2004) will be the eighth Memorial winner to be enshrined. The others are Jack Nicklaus (1977, ’84), Tom Watson (’79, ’96), Raymond Floyd (’82), Hale Irwin (’83, ’85), Curtis Strange (’88), Greg Norman (’90, ’95) and Vijay Singh (’97). Others are sure to follow.

•What: The 36th Memorial Tournament •Where: Muirfield Village Golf Club in Dublin •Purse: A record $6.2 million, with the winner receiving $1,116,000 •Defending champion: Justin Rose •Honoree: Nancy Lopez •Schedule: The four tournament rounds will be played Thursday, June 2, through Sunday, June 5. •TV coverage: The Golf Channel will televise the first and second rounds

That list is headlined by Tiger Woods, who is the Memorial’s only four-time champion (19992001, ’09). Many of the Memorial’s participants likely will be competing for the final time before the U.S. Open is played June 16-19 at Congressional Country Club in Bethesda, Md. That’s always been Woods’ schedule, although his appearance at Muirfield Village appears unlikely as he recovers

from 3-6 p.m., the third round from 12:30-2:30 p.m. and the final round from noon-2 p.m. CBS will televise the third round from 3-6 p.m. and the final round from 2:30-6 p.m. •Tickets: Patron badges good for the entire week are available for $155 and include a complimentary practice round ticket for Wednesday, June 1. Children age 12 and under are admitted free all week. Practice round tickets also are available for $30 and are good for all three days. For more information, call 1-877-MTBADGE weekdays from 9 a.m.-5 p.m. or visit www.thememorialtournament.com.

from knee and Achilles injuries. The full Memorial field will be announced on Friday, May 27. “You’ve got the majors, and then you have this other level of elite tournaments,” television analyst David Feherty said. “That’s where Jack’s (tournament) is. It’s been there since the beginning and I can’t see that changing.” kadams@thisweeknews.com www.ThisWeekSPORTS.com

LARSON Continued from page A6 year. At one time we lost seven straight games and after that tough stretch we realized what we were doing wrong and worked unbelievably hard to correct our mistakes, and it has paid off. “Now we are all together as one and there is absolutely no individuality on this team, and when someone makes a mistake we all try to pick them up and the results are obvious. Our confidence is up and we are really hitting the ball well right now.” For veteran coach Jim Campolo, this is a return trip to state, where he guided the Lions to a Division I runner-up finish in 2003. He has high praise for his team. “I believe lots of people underestimated us because we lost a ton of players from last year’s regional finalist team,” he said. “The thing that has made this team special in my opinion is that we are loaded with speed and our opponents had better play good defense against us to stop what we like to do and, knock on wood, so far the other teams haven’t been able to do that. “Since our team was in the state championship tournament eight years ago I have been trying to get us back to that level. We have definitely had some teams during these past eight

years that were capable of reaching the final four, but we always seemed to make a few mistakes that prevented us from going. This year we have just laid it on the line. “We have gotten ahead in many of our games and just hung on. These kids have great heart and never quit. I told all of them recently that I don’t care how many times you go to the regional tournament or the state championship tournament, it is going to always be new and exciting, and it will be one of the best things you can do in sports as an athlete.” Reflecting on her team and on her softball career at Gahanna, Marshall said, “I totally agree with coach Campolo that our main strength is our quickness. Our top seven batters are really fast and that speed not only helps when we run the bases, it also helps cover ground in the field, which is a big boost for us. “This has been a great experience this year and really during my four years here at Gahanna Lincoln. I love that softball is a team sport and not an individual sport because you grow and blend as a team. Softball has made me more patient and an all-around better person. It has made it possible for me to further my education next year at Miami and definitely changed my life.” For Campolo, Marshall and

the rest of the Gahanna softball team, one goal has been reached as they have qualified for the state tournament. Winning is the next and the ultimate goal. I’ll see you at a game. Larry Larson is a former athletics director at Grandview High School. He can be heard as “Mr. High School Sports” on WTVN 610 AM.
